Ok, we've all owned and used a number of different coffee makers in our days. Here is one where if you want to brew decaffeinated coffee, you need to phone a 1-800 number and request a different spray nozzle and then install it yourself. This brewer also requires you to maintain a hidden hot water tank reservoir of water for it to function as designed. However, should the reservoir, that you can not see how much water is in it gets low, will only partially brew your coffee. The product is supposed to brew a pot of coffee in 3 minutes. I was unable to remove the pot on my first brew for over 7 minutes. The reason? This unit does not have an auto temporary drip shut off when the pot is removed. Remove the pot during brewing, you will need clean up towels. I had to visualy check if the filter cup was done dripping. The warmer base is not designed well at all, as the pot does not seat firmly You will have to learn a feel for where the pot is placed and I'm sure any guests will know that. In addition, if the pot is not placed within reasonable distance of the dripping coffee...get a towel. My first and last pot of coffee the spray head that puts hot water into the filter cup...sprayed coffee grounds over the edge. I used 3 teaspoons of coffee. Got a towel. I suppose with a fair amount of effort, I could learn to use this coffee maker. But at 4:30 a.m., who wants to mess around with your coffee pot. Oh by the way...no brew timer either.

This Bunn coffee maker works very well. It took me a while to understand how it worked, but I had no problems following the instructions to set it up.
The tank remains full and constantly heated. When you add cold water for a fresh pot, the cold water forces the hot water into the carafe. I usually make about 5 cups at a time, so the coffee is done in less than 2 minutes. I was surprised to find that the coffee is so flavorful even though it brews so fast. I did not have to increase the amount of coffee I use (I use very fine ground coffee).
I like the drip-free spout, it really works! I also like the porcelain-coated warming plate. Some filters are included (about 30), and I found them stocked at my local Walmart. It is best to use the Bunn filters -they are taller than the other ones so the coffee does not flow over the filter. I also like the included tool to scrape the inside mineral deposits from the drip tube.
Although the coffee maker works great, I would have liked to have a pause feature, an end-of-brewing signal, and an auto shut-off. I am also trying to get used to the idea of the water sitting in the tank instead of using fresh water each day.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Faisal Brews smooth coffee
The coffee maker was delivered well packaged and included a bundle of filters, a cleaning tool for spray-head tube and a carafe. Operation is very simple. Coffee into filter and water into brewer is all what it needs and within 3 minutes out comes the coffee. There is no question that the coffee it brews is very smooth but I will add the filtered water and fresh ground coffee to the equation.
The description say that it can make up to 10 cups and I am not really clear on that. The carafe can take only up to 5 cups of brewed coffee at a time unless we are talking about teeny-tiny cups. I generally never fill it up more than what the carafe can hold and it can’t take more than 5 cups.
It is 6.75 inches wide, 13.5 inches deep, 14 inches tall and the power cable is 28 inches long with a 3 prong plug. With such a thin profile, it takes least amount of space on my kitchen counter top and I like that. Appearance is almost all black with a bit of silver on the forehead. With that, it can easily blend-in with black OR silver appliances in your kitchen.
Talking about features, it has no digital display, no K-Cup feature or single cup brewing, no clock, no timer and no auto shut-off after few hours of running. Bottom line, it has no extra features.
Included manual is well written and explains initial setup, brewing and cleaning in easy to understand details.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jbb49 Fast brew time, no added features!
Once the brewer heated the water (about 15 minutes) the coffee was fast, hot and tasted great. The brewer is larger than other models and takes up more counter space due to the water storage tank. We only drink coffee in the mornings so the issue here is the brewer either takes three minutes to brew the coffee with the warmer continuously warming 24/7 or if you turn the warmer off then 15 minutes to heat the water each morning and then three to brew. Energy consumption is greater in the first scenario and longer time to wait for a cup of coffee in the second. Although a great cup of coffee I don't think is a good brewer for the home that only fixes one pot a day!

Great heavy duty coffee maker. Heats water fast and makes a pot of coffee pretty quickly. It's pretty sleek, and is the size of a regular high quality counter coffee maker. It's heavy duty, durable. It's pretty lightweight, most of the body is made of plastic. Easy to use and clean, nothing fancy and you won't need a degree to operate it. Has only an on/off button, and is a pretty standard coffee maker like back in the day. No timers or other bells and whistles, it's just a coffeemaker.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Timmer Good Coffeemaker, but Disappointed
There are several 5-star reviews on this coffeemaker and they are well deserved. It produces good tasting coffee, but I had to double the amount of coffee I use to reproduce the same taste as other coffeemakers I've owned. It brews very fast because it maintains an internal water reservoir that it keeps constantly hot and ready to use, thus probably more energy consumption than I'd like. The BIG drawback for me is that it does not have an automatic plate warmer shutoff. For me, this is a big deal because I frequently go into my office and forget about it. Thus I come out to an empty burned decanter. Their decanter is excellent. There are no sound features, such as notifications when the brew is finished; no timer; no clock. I am returning primarily because of no automatic plate warmer shutoff. The great thing about Bunn is they offer replacement parts for just about everything, unlike most other manufactures. This is a consumer quality version of Bunn's higher quality products, thus mostly plastic on the outside. It's well made. Although I have shopped at Home Depot for decades, this was my first online purchase. It was a very good experience; everything went well with fast shipping.

This is my second Bunn (my first lasted 12 years). I highly recommend this coffee maker for anyone wanting great coffee in 3 minutes. Great quality and efficiency for the price. The only coffee maker brand I would buy.
